The Church of God International is featuring “something new” on the CGI App. “The Chosen” is a television drama based on the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Its the first multi-season series about the life of Jesus, and season one was the top crowd-funded TV series or film project of all time!
The series … portrays Jesus “through the eyes of those who met him“. It is exciting to “read” in scripture about the life & adventures of Jesus & his disciples — as we have proven & trust the authority of scripture, for establishing doctrine & the true account.
We live, however, in the TV or video generation where we can also learn & benefit from reenactments of the historical events of the Gospel accounts! With video, we “see & hear” … and often this helps us picture & remember important events of scripture.
As far as I know, the CGI was not involved in any of the writing or production of The Chosen, but we are able to make available this resource as a wholesome alternative to “other things” that may appear on TV. It is always “fun” to see if we can spot any Biblical inaccuracies when viewing such a drama — & I expect the series is NOT PERFECT in every detail – but it often reinforces our learning to experience these depictions. The aspect I look forward to the most, is to see how the writers & director enhance our view of Jesus (and those around Him) via telling the Story through the eyes of people Jesus encounters.
Rotten Tomatoes scores The Chosen with a perfect score of 100% for the first season. So … If you don’t yet have the Cgi App installed on your Apple or Android device … The Chosen may be just the motivator that you need (as the series is not available on our websites).
